      Are there any possible bets? I know that 88 stand not so cool against 7% of his 3bet spectre, but we got position. Can it help us somehow?

      fold PF. It's nog +EV to call 3 bets OOP w small pocket pairs. If I do decide to play this hand because my opponent is aggro or whatnot, I would play 4bet/call.
      But in this scenario(=4bet/c) ur hoping he will have AQs+ vs which we are just a coinflip.

      In the current situation I would probably play ch/fold post flop (like you played it).
      Or bluff the river, because when he doesn't cbet this flop or turn he most likely has a small pair himself(77-88-JJ ...).

      When he hits a draw or a TP on the flop he would definitely cbet so we can exclude draws + top pair kinda hands from his range which means he has a weak made hand with some showdown value that he might fold sometimes if we bet big on the K river.

      I would Fold to his 3B.

      You can probably take a shot on the flop which hits ok your range (AT/AQ).
      If you face resistance give it up but you might take the pot down straight away.

      I think call with 88 ip is fine
      I would likely b/f turn, although you can also check it down
      Just you give AK 10 or even more outs to improve and once you bet yourself you don´t have to worry that he´d bet river too often
